Marker Setup: Here we go
03 Dye Reflex Autococker

12'' Blue Evil Pipe kit (excellent system, highly recommended)
3ds Litestik bolt (2nd generation, smooth as silk)
CCM Delrin back block
Shocktech FGP regulator (awesome)

Dye Rhino cover (blue, best tank cover, and very sexy too!)
Strengths: Adjustabe pressure
Doesn't creep
Drilled for guage (unlike dye hyper reg)
Decently comfortable grip
Weaknesses: Recharge rate
Poor consistancy (becuase of recharge rate)
Review: This reg has a bad recharge rate, plain and simple. If you plan on shooting more than 5-6 pb/s then look for a better reg. That's really all there is to it. If you set the reg at 250psi and your tank output pressure is set at 800-850psi there shouldn't be too much recharge time right, wrong. While waking the trigger I would watch the gauge and it would start at 250psi and after I started shooting the gauge would drop to about 200psi and stay right around there, that's horrible in my opinion. I tested that over a chrono and it translated to a 70fps drop from 285-215fps. That's very bad if you really need to get a guy out and your shots drop instead of hitting him.
Conclusion: If you need to get a reg a don't have one this reg isn't a bad starting spot. If you are obsessed with perfection (like me) don't get this reg, there a better ones out there. I give it a 6 because it does its job, doesn't creep on you (increase pressure in the reg above set pressure), but has a horrible recharge rate (somewhere around a second or more). So overall it isn't perfect, but nothing is, but this is further away from perfect than I find acceptable, and wouldn't recommend it to those serious about getting the most out of there gun.
